Freelance Audio Editor, Sound Designer and Musician who specialises in Audio Post-Production, with an emphasis on podcasts & audio dramas. High standards & reasonable rates. Custom plans to suits your needs and budget. Lets talk about how we might work together!
I am a freelance Audio Editor, Sound Designer and Musician who specialises in Audio Post-Production for podcasts & audio dramas. With over 15 years of experience working in the audio industry on a wide variety of projects, I am confident that I can assist you to bring your project to life!
Knowing how and when to edit dialogue to create smooth and realistic pacing requires a high degree of sensitivity to the natural rhythm of human speech and conversation, as well as the technical skill to achieve realistic results. In terms of sound design, creating an enhanced and immersive listening experience through the use of sound effects and musical elements requires an acute awareness of the creative vision of a given project as well as the technical skills to create the desired effect in a way that supports rather than detracts from the dialogue or central narrative of each project.
If you are looking for someone to take care of the tedious and time consuming aspects of podcast production including editing, mixing, show notes writing, SEO optimization and generally preparing your content for distribution, please get in touch!
I pride myself on being reliable, hard working and easy to work with. I value honesty, respect and open communication when working with others on any project.

Interview with Soundmind Editing
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I use Adobe Audition and Ableton Live. I use a pair of high quality Dyn-Audio studio monitors and Audio Technica headphones. My computer is an Asus UX305.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Most of the work I do with Podcasts is to edit and clean audio that clients have recorded. I eliminate or minimize any background noise and mix the audio to improve overall quality. I also insert advertisements, intro's and outro's and export the complete project to a format that is complete and ready to be uploaded to any podcasting platform. I also compose intro/outro theme music and transition elements. I can also utilise my vast sound effects library and compose atmospheric elements for more involved podcasts like audio dramas and audio documentaries.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Radiolab, TED Radio Hour, Death In Ice Valley
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Typically I will ask that clients upload all relevant files for a given project to a Google Drive folder that I will create. I will also ask for notes detailing specific editing requirements or anything else the client thinks I should know before starting work. I will then organise the files and complete the audio edit in Adobe Audition before exporting it and uploading the final product to the same Google Drive folder. I will then notify the client and inquire about potential revisions. If music composition is required I will use Ableton Live.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Communication and professionalism. Seamless audio editing and restoration. Music composition.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Electronic, low-fi, beats, synthesizer-based music.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: ALWAYS reference your final mixes on multiple devises in multiple environments before printing the final mix!
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been working with audio for over 15 years. I have worked as a performer, teacher and studio musician. I have been involved with podcasting specifically for around 10 years and have experience with all facets of podcasting including editing, mixing, recording, writing, voice acting and production.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Open and reliable communication is key to completing a project efficiently and to ensuring everybody involved is satisfied with the end result.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Are you able to clean up gaps and mistakes in my conversation? YES! My audio has reverb or background noise, are you able to get rid of that? Sometimes it is not possible to completely remove reverb or background noise without ruining the dialogue but I can drastically improve the sound quality in most cases and reduce reverb and background noise by a significant amount. Are you able to insert my intro/outro/advertisement audio as well? YES.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise that I will do the absolute best I can to make your podcast sound professional! I also promise that I will be responsive and professional throughout the entire process.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Always editing podcasts!
